My Go-To Cookbooks

I've always loved cooking, I remember when I was little I used to 'cook' - which just involved putting flour, eggs, water and food colouring into a big bowl. Luckily, I've made some culinary improvements in my adult life. Even when I was living at home with my Mum, I tended to take charge of the cooking - so I've been upping my foodie credentials for a few years now. 

As much as I love cooking, I'm one of those people who needs a recipe. I'm not good at just winging it as I go, I need to know exactly what and how much I need to use and exactly how I need of use it. So over the fast few years I've amassed a bunch of 'go-to' cookbooks that I can rely on for delicious meals that aren't too tricky.

A Modern Way To Eat // Anna Jones

This is the most recent addition to my list of trusted cookbooks but it might just be my favourite. It's actually a vegetarian cookbook, which might put some people off, but every recipe I've tried is bursting with flavour and perfectly filling. It's a great way to introduce more veggie meals into your diet, which is not only good for you but is better for your bank balance as well! One of my favourite recipes is the lentil dahl with sweet potato and coconut chutney, I posted this picture on my instagram if you want to see what I looks like. 

Jamie's 30 Minute Meals // Jamie Oliver

It's a running joke in my family that these don't take 30 minutes. Probably more like an hour and that's just if you're doing the main - forget the side, drink and dessert. However, they are very easy to do and are really impressively tasty - I actually did the sausage pasta recipe for a birthday dinner party of mine and it went down a storm! This is a great book if you're starting out with cooking as it introduces you to so many types of cuisine, from traditional English to Italian to Indian.

Leon: Naturally Fast Food // Henry Dimbleby & John Vincent

I'm a huge fan of the Leon fast food shops, they are great for picking up something that is yummy and made from good stuff. This cookbook has the exact same ethos, lots of quick ways to rustle up something great for lunch and dinner. I've found it really good for salad and side recipes, their garlic and olive oil aubergine is *ok hand sign emoji*. 

This really does what it says on the tin...or book cover. The recipes are an absolute breeze and I love the focus on fresh food. There is a fabulous recipe for fajitas, salsa and guacamole that rivals any packet mix - plus contains a no sugar and minimal salt (which you'll find lots of in the packet stuff). She also doesn't do a bad dessert section, you haven't lived until you've tried her Maltesers cake!
